bleeding hearts

The name of this flower seems perfect for its shape, bleeding heart. I love the color and the way the flower's shape matches the name.

Rain began falling just after I started my drive to work this morning. The sky seemed to lower, the rain strengthened. As I headed to the west I saw a jagged fork of lightening heading from sky to ground, then heard the loud crash of thunder.

The forecast calls for a very wet day.

Are these buds (before) or seed pods (after)? There were a few purple blooms but the plant was mainly wearing these interesting shapes.

purple beauty

A flash of purple caught my eye as I walked through the garden this afternoon.

rabbit rabbit

I caught a glimpse of a turkey mom and babies as I stood near the window on the second floor of my house. I grabbed a camera and snuck around the back of the building, hoping to grab a photo. The turkeys moved much too fast for me but this little rabbit was kind enough to pose for me.

opening soon

Most of the spring flowers have dropped their petals; summer flowers will be opening soon.

The flowers of the poppies are long gone but the stems still stand and twist, highlighted by the purple flowers that have popped up in the background.

beach day!

The southern end of Hampton Beach was a good spot for a wander on the beach last Friday afternoon. There were people playing in the sand and in the (cold) water, with plenty of open space remaining for walking.

The bright pink petals of a wild rose pop on a summer morning.
